Government of Nunavut ransomware update

November 12, 2019, 2:30 p.m.

The Government of Nunavut (GN) can now confirm that all departments’ back-ups, as of October 31 have been recovered and the data is ready to be restored. 

GN voicemail in Iqaluit is now working. 

The Government’s central IT division is working closely with departmental IT teams to restore the recovered data and bring all systems back online. 

Restoring electronic data for services in the departments of Health, Family Services, Education, Justice and Finance is the priority.

We would like to remind Nunavummiut that government services are open and functional.  The GN can be reached by phone, fax and voicemail. All information on government programs and services is available at www.gov.nu.ca.

We thank Nunavummiut for their patience as we continue to provide updates on Facebook, the GN website and community radio as soon as they are available.
